Based on a literature review on the theory of "double dividend", this paper is designed to carry out an empirical study on the issue whether there is a "double dividend" effect in China's existing environmental tax system. The empirical analysis shows that: (1) under the current scale of environmental tax revenues in China, there is no "double dividend" effect; (2) there is still a weak "green" effect on pollution reduction and this "green" effect may not come into effect instantly after the green tax reform is carried out and it needs more time; (3) taxes promote fixed asset investment of the society, and maintain it at a high level in the long term;(4) On the distribution effect and employment effect, environmental, taxes do not play their corresponding role in China. As a result, there is no "double dividend" effect in China's existing environmental tax composition, but there is great potential for a "Green Tax" reform.
